How to Simultaneously Upgrade Your Hardware and Reduce CAPEX
Your enterprise’s workforce has enough on its plate; the last thing they want to do is manage hardware. With DecisionPoint and Zebra rental capabilities (or Zebra as a Service, ZaaS), you can focus on what matters while we address any technical issues your hardware may encounter.
ZaaS works like a monthly lease; you make payments to receive a fleet of hardware, and when something needs updated or maintained, DecisionPoint deals with it all for one fee. DecisionPoint and Zebra’s ZaaS program provides your operation with an entire fleet of hardware that has the latest technology installed on it. While you focus on your daily tasks, we’re hard at work, ensuring your hardware technology and software are operating at peak performance!
In addition to hands-on care for your hardware systems, ZaaS can help you save time and money by:
- Providing a cheaper option than buying a whole new fleet of devices
- Ensuring hardware is always up to date-so IT can focus on other essential tasks
- Boosting productivity and minimizing downtime with the latest technology
- Avoid upfront costs with the monthly payment so you can spend capital can be on other endeavors

How ZaaS Works
ZaaS can be compared to a monthly lease, but what really is ZaaS, and how does it work? ZaaS is a business model in which a company (DecisionPoint) offers an enterprise a contract in which DecisionPoint provides Zebra hardware along with any services that equipment may require throughout its use for a standard monthly payment.
Once a contract is signed, DecisionPoint implements Zebra’s top-notch hardware into your facility, then monitors and services the equipment as needed based on your selected service agreement. This set up creates ease of mind for many enterprises as it eliminates tedious management and service tasks.
For instance, compare these scenarios:
Scenario A: Employee Cameron is starting his shift when he prints a batch of medical bracelets, only to find the printer is out of commission. Cameron spends an hour working with IT to get them working again. This issue sets them behind and affects everyone waiting on a bracelet.
Scenario B: Employee Cameron is starting his shift; a DecisionPoint Employee is just leaving Cameron’s facility after having fixed a broken roller on the printer and updated the system according to their service agreement. Cameron can start his shift without any issues and can focus on other tasks at hand.
Scenario B is ZaaS! It provides the power of ease of mind, taking the technology worries out of your daily grind. In addition to the software updates and maintenance security discussed above, ZaaS also provides users with the latest technology. While under contract, ZaaS can update your hardware with the newest models as they become available!
ZaaS Contracts Can Be Customized to Provide:
- 24/7 monitoring
- Hardware installment
- Software updates
- Regular maintenance
- Emergency maintenance
- Hardware replacements and upgrades
With all the benefits ZaaS delivers, it’s no wonder that more companies are making the switch!
Saving Money with the ZaaS Model
Other than convenience and ease of mind, why should a company invest in a ZaaS? Because ZaaS provides cost-saving services and technology every step of the way!
Start saving money right away with the ZaaS model by avoiding upfront investments. With the monthly payment plan, there is no need for a sizeable up-front investment, which means that cash can get put into other critical business ventures.
In addition to avoiding upfront costs, ZaaS allows you to pick and choose which services you desire for your company, providing you with the flexibility to decide how much or how little your monthly fee will be when signing your contract!
On top of payment flexibility, ZaaS payments are less than investing in a whole new fleet of devices. A new fleet of devices can cost more than $100,000. ZaaS monthly payments a drop in the bucket in comparison.
As mentioned above, ZaaS customers are provided with hardware and software updates as they become available. With ZaaS covering upgrades and maintenance, there is less downtime for equipment, and internal IT staff are free to focus on other tasks, improving any department’s speed and efficiency.
According to AMR Research, small businesses spend an average of 6.4 percent of their annual revenue on IT Expenses. Add that with the fact that according to Gartner, 80 percent of IT costs are incurred after the purchase of new fleet devices, it’s no wonder why new technology purchases can cause anxiety to business owners; With ZaaS, these costs are dramatically reduced.
Further advantages with ZaaS come from end-user adoption and hardware fluency. On average, it takes someone 20 hours to become proficient with a new skill, according to Josh Kaufman, author of The Personal MBA. With 20 hours to become proficient in a new area, the average employee has to spend 45 minutes a day for a whole month learning how to use new hardware and software. With ZaaS, training time can be reduced simply by managing updates and implementing only ones pertinent to your workforce’s daily tasks.
